As the  Area  Chair for Film  & History at the Southwest PCAACA  meeting 
in  Albuquerque, 9-12 February, I am looking for some papers to round  out 
existing panels.  Below is a quick list…If you have something that might  fit 
in  comfortably, let me know. 
1. US myths and images in  film 
Now have two papers: one on atomic  mushroom cloud image and one 
on radical  image in film. 
2.  Latin American Images in US films 
Currently have papers on the  Spanish-American War and Mexican-American war 
plus a paper on WWII efforts to  make films for South America audiences. 
3.  International Cinema and Cultural Images 
Currently have items on German Wim  Wenders plus a paper on American 
propaganda about  Germany during  WWI.   
ADDITIONAL events include a night with Barbara Warne,  webmeister of  
_The  West Wing_  informal  web site.  (Great place!) 
Also, a "debate" between Rob Toplin and Glenn  Harris over the meaning of the 
landmark film, _Guess Who's  Coming to Dinner?_ 
These panels and events will take place within a  larger conference about  
Popular Culture and American Culture. 
Hope to hear from people about the numbered items  (1-3) above...

The  regional meeting for 2005 will take place in Albuquerque, New Mexico,
a  favored site for our gatherings. The events will run between February 
9-12, 2005  at the Hyatt Regency Albuquerque (330 Tijera; 505.842.1234) We have 
gone to the  downtown area of the city where a massive refurbishing has brought 
in shopping  and dining opportunities of quality. We are excited about the 
special hotel  rates negotiated by our new leaders. There is even a special 
graduate student  rate. (See details on web site.)
